Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti

 The National Policy on Education-1986 envisaged the setting up of residential schools, to be called Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas that would bring out the best of rural talent.
. Its significance lies in the selection of talented rural children as the target group and the attempt to provide them with quality education comparable to the best in a residential school system. Such children are found in all sections of society, and in all areas including the most backward.
These talented children otherwise would have been deprived of quality modern education traditionally available only in the urban areas. good quality education has been available only to well-to-do sections of society, and the poor have been left out.
Navodaya Vidyalaya uploaded admit card of Class 6. Now candidate can download admit card but the admit card is only available through CSC ID at CSC centers. Candidate have need to pay Rs. 10 for downloading admit card of navodaya vidyalaya class 6 2018. So candidate can visit any CSC Center and then take their Admit card.

Vice Chancellor of the BHU Changed

Rakesh Bhatnagar has been appointed as the vice-chancellor of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU). Bhatnagar has been working in the field of anthrax for the past 20 years.

Rakesh Bhatnagar, who was VC of Kumaon University from 2012 to 2013, has been teaching at JNU for two decades and his areas of interest include molecular biology of infectious diseases, recombinant vaccine development and programmed cell death in prokaryotes.

Prof. Rakesh Bhatnagar has been working in the field of anthrax for the past 20 years.

Rakesh Bhatnagar's predecessor, Girish Chandra Tripathi, had gone on leave two months before his tenure came to an end, following a ruckus on campus in September last year.

The development came amid indications from HRD Ministry sources that the central government was upset with the manner in which the former vice-chancellor had handled the entire episode, including a protest by women students following an incident of alleged harassment.
